    At 7:00 PM CST, Turner Classic Movies is showing the 1974 version of The Taking of Pelham One Two Three. This is truly a classic, with Robert Shaw as the psychopathic bad guy vs Walter Matthau as the slightly goofy good guy. Exciting and suspenseful......if you haven't seen it (or want to see it again) check it out. About one hour and six minutes from.......NOW!

    I love that movie. I think I watched it about 6 months ago. I don't want to wear it out. Thanks for the tip though!

    Good one!

    Another cool Walter Matthau film from the same era is "Charley Varrick"

    Great movie. Love gritty 70s NY flicks.
    Mr. Costanza was a little more helpful in Pelham123 than...

    I’ve not seen that one.
    I was actually hoping for Jeremiah Johnson.

    Great film -- absolutely killer opening and closing title music by David Shire:





    This and Herbie Hancock's original Death Wish soundtrack is what New York in the 1970s sounds like to me.

    That's Robert Shaw and James Broderick....Matthew Broderick's father. Who knew Ferris Bueller's father drove a subway train?
